    Members names and what they mean

    I love seeing the Members names and am wondering if we could have a thread going where we can tell how we came up with our name and if it has a special meaning.

    I will start: My name is "littlebitoheaven". Being seniors, my husband and I decided to build (literally build) a new home on land in Wisconsin that has been in my husband's family for over 100 years. It took us six years to complete. We did hire the foundation; the dry wall and the roof to be contracted out. The rest we did ourselves. I especially loved putting in the wood floors. When we finished the house, I said that it should be called a "littlebitoheaven" as it is in a wooded area overlooking a small river. We love the serenity and the scenery and feel so blessed to have this home.

    Ok, I'll go. Dakotamaid is the brand of flour that I grew up with in North Dakota. Seemed appropriate when I was needing an internet name.
    Have a great day sewing and remember to "not sweat the small stuff"!!

    I have 15 grandkids and soon to have 10 great grandkids. They are the joys of my life. I love their reactions to the quilts.

    My name is Amanda but I have always gone by Mandi. When I was little my uncle use to call me manderz panderz and it was eventually shortened to Panderz. I have used it for all my online, sceen, and emails from the time I was old enough to use a computer although it wasn't until I was about 20 that I found out where I got the nickname.

    From one of my rescued dump bunnies. His name eventually morphed into Fester ..... but I thought Chester was more dignified for the board.

    He's the brown one...... The black one was Sam. (Sambunnydoo)
    Nobody made a greater mistake than he who did nothing because he could only do a little.

    I have spent nearly all my life in Cheshire, Massachusetts in view of Mount Greylock. This has been a wonderful place to grow and live and raise a family and now have grandchildren. I've collected a few pictures of the Cheshire Cat because I'd like to incorporate one of them into a quilt someday. I should change my avatar one of these days, because my ginger Cheshire Cat, Franky, has been gone for well over a year now.

    My name is Pam. I have owned a custom bridal business for almost 20 years which is named Future Heirlooms- All Things Bridal and Beautiful. It has been shortened to Future Heirlooms. I am a sole proprietor and have used MsHeirloom for my user name on many online discussion groups.

    My husbands name is Mike, obviously. Lol. And we were newlyweds when I first joined the board. And I'm still his girl.

    Something my son called me because he was teasing me about being short. It just stuck. 2013 is the year I joined this group.

    I have 3 Kenmore machines and 1 spare Kenmore for parts. That's all the machines I own. When I first signed up "Kenmore Gal" was taken, so I had to add a "2".

    Mine screen name is from my French Bulldog puppy in my avatar (the fawn colored puppy) his name was Otis - he was 7 months old when he needed surgery to repair his breathing problems - he did not survive the surgery - my husband and I were heartbroken - I joined the board shortly after Otis passed away and I used his name to honor his memory - I still have the white/black Frenchie named Shorty and since then we have added two more Black Frenchies Clyde and Dozer. My real name is Teresa.

    Mine is because when I retired I planned to be constantly quilting and my nickname was already Candy, so Quiltingcandy just seemed to be the right right handle.

    I lived in Oregon most of my life with a career in Human Resources that left me no time, or frankly desire, to sew or do any crafts at all. When my husband transferred his job to the Phoenix area the economy was down, so I wasn't able to find a job that quickly so went back to my love of sewing to fill my time - or Cactus Stitchin.
